At his postelection campaign rally Thursday, supporters of Donald Trump yelled “lock her up!,” continuing the Trumpian theme of imprisoning his political opposition. Meanwhile, Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski told a panel that New York Times editor Dean Baquet should be imprisoned for publishing Trump’s tax return. “It’s egregious,” Lewandowski continued. “He should be in jail.” Also, Trump delivered a long rant against the dishonest media.

As always with Trump, it’s difficult to tell where performance ends and intention begins. But the president-elect has consolidated leadership of the party that holds complete control of government by putting on a convincing imitation of a strongman.
